Now, Magron Novus is getting ready for its entry into this highly competitive segment with its electric bike. 

More Details on the Magron Novus Electric Motorcycle

This bike is said to get an all carbon-fibre design. It will be the world’s first fully forged carbon fibre electric motorcycle. Now, the bike has been spotted testing for the first time. The Bengaluru-based start-up’s maiden offering was spotted on the Outer Ring Road.  

The bike gets a minimalistic design with a full fairing. There is an LED tail light, LED blinkers and a rear mono-shock at the back. The motorcycle gets a mid-mounted motor. This will give a good centre of gravity for the bike. 

While the front end is not visible in the spied images, the teaser of the bike shows sequential LED DRLs, which could also do double duty as the turn indicators.
